Such a cool experience. William and his family are incredibly nice, and always very helpful. The co-host, Antonio, is also amazing and kind. I got great insight into the culture, tried a lot of new foods, met many locals and saw another way of living. The kids at the school are also very sweet and eager to learn. I did the photography position, which was good and fun! Can definitely recommend. Hope to come back and visit again one day. Indeed an unforgettable and different experience!

A wonderful experience, both the school and William with his family! I spent a little over one month teaching English at the school. The teachers and the children were curious and enthusiastic creating a very good atmosphere, so that I easily felt like I became part of the team. William and his family are very welcoming and always make sure that you have everything needed. This experience was an unforgettable experience and I truly recommend this project to anybody who is interested in immersing in the true the school.
